Thursday incident in Easton sends two people to the hospital

EASTON — A man and a woman were taken to the University of Maryland Shore Regional Medical Center in Easton with non-life-threatening injuries after a reported incident in the 29000 block of Holly Road in Easton Thursday afternoon, Sept. 19.

The initial 911 call came at 1:07 p.m. to report a possible shooting; however, Easton Police Sgt. Eric Kellner confirmed no shooting occurred.

He said two women reportedly barricaded themselves inside a house in the 29000 block of Holly Road to get away from a man.

Kellner said while police were en route, the women got out of the house. He said Talbot County Emergency Services then took the man and one of the women to the hospital.

Kellner called the man a person of interest but was not able to release his name, the names of the women or much of any information about the incident because the investigation remains active.

“The details surrounding the motive of the situation are unclear,” he said. “Investigators are actively interviewing witnesses and victims. We know there was not a shooting.”

He said investigators were filing search warrants to look more closely at the property.

Along with Easton police and Talbot County Emergency Services, Maryland State Police and the Talbot County Sheriff’s Office responded to the incident.
